So after a while I can usually get into what a bass player is doing with his solos to a point. I'm not saying I know everything they are doing but they all kind of have a flow or style to them. Like maybe they play more lick oriented solos or play more chord tones or play with upper structures or patterns and so forth. But I'm kind of lost with Dave Holland. I have listened to him for quite a while now and have to say he is still probably my favorite bass player as far as solos go but I can't quite figure the stuff out. I don't hear him play that many licks or patterns that often and I can't really hear if they are upper structure stuff or not just because of the crazy comping of Steve Nelson but they all sound so great and blow me away everytime. So now that I've gone on probably too long, has anyone got any insights into Holland's concepts of soloing? Anything you may have noticed in his play? I hear that he is a pretty nice guy so maybe if he has talked about it with anyone.
